    Blockade is like a siege, Nothing goes in nothing comes out.
    The south ran boats from shallow water rivers to off shore ships.

    It was necessary to block the Southern ports to try and prevent commerce-the economic lifeline. The CSA establish a Navy. There were also many ‘blockade runners.’
